That's the wall I was looking for to show you in another thread you posted in about graphics. You were talking about paralax occlusion mapping by Cryengine.
Not sure if that's what that is coupled with tesselation.

I dont think its PADM, but it could be.

Not going to happen, sorry :(

Damn ;( So Maldo is the only hope we have for some additional modification to the game ;p

Weird, steam stopped saving uncompressed screenshots of Ryse for half the game only to save the very last one I took. Oh well! Looking forward to what talented people do, game looks unbelievably gorgeous.

Yes the characters look amazing. That last screen with the three characters was a cutscene but it was realtime.

All these awesome FFXIII screens have me tempted to play it but I've never actually played a Final Fantasy game before. From what I've seen the "gameplay" doesn't seem like my cup of tea. It just looks like a turn based game comprised of a series of mini cutscenes disguised as gameplay, but who knows, maybe I'd be into it once I learned how to play it. Would FFXIII be a good game to get into the series with?

XIII is alright, but I'd recommend taking a crack at VI first.

No... Frankly I am disgusted by all those screenshots, was hoping GAF would have better taste. :p

I was expecting this from a mile away.

I Recommend starting with ANY you feel like. This isn't some iterative franchise like Dragon Quest.

Every title tries to do something different. IMO they aren't really directly comparable.

And even if you start with XIII, there's really no chance it will negatively impact your view of others. Hell if you are like some people, it will probably do the opposite /shrug

Is Ryse any fun? the screenshots are fucking insane. Would consider picking it up if a few gaffers recommended it.

Now if only all those cutscenes that were originally realtime but converted to ultra low quality as fuck 1600x900 FMVs just to save on loading were back in Real time.
Yes, it's night and day between realtime and the videos. Plus if it was realtime it would have saved space.

It's an okay game. I would only get it in a sale. I chipped in for it with a friend so I wasn't bothered.
I'd say it's a 6/10 game at best.
